[ARCHIVED] Final drive-thru drug collection to be held this Saturday

Cranberry Township will participate in its final Prescription Drug Take-Back Day at the Municipal Center rear parking lot on Saturday, September 27 from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM. The popular drive-thru, drop-off collection program, which was initiated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration several years ago, is being retired as new opportunities for disposing of unwanted prescription medicines are being created at hospitals, pharmacies and other health facilities. They join the recent installation of self-service collection boxes in various government locations, including the lobby of Cranberry’s police department.
The goals of the new system for drug disposal remain the same: safeguarding against expired medicine, preventing pollution of water with pharmaceuticals, and keeping potentially dangerous drugs from falling into the wrong hands.
The drive-thru program is anonymous; no questions are asked of anyone bringing in items for disposal and no identification is needed. All collected medicine will be turned over to the DEA for destruction. All forms of medication, including tablets, capsules, pills, liquids and ointments, whether purchased by prescription or over-the-counter, will be accepted. They can be deposited loose or inside their original containers. However sharpies and syringes cannot be accepted due to the potential hazards posed by blood-borne pathogens. There is no charge for the drug disposal service. For more information, contact Public Safety Director Jeff Schueler at
